    What is "OP"?

    Yes, but carry lead weights is much easy, than big tanks. :)
    You can just to carry it on the belt :)
    Each composite tank require 3 kg extra lead to got neutral bouyancy.
    And you can have just one set of weights for many lightweight tanks.
    (But I have just two tanks, and use it both in same time)

    "I have 5 AL80's that I tend to carry around in the back of my truck. I usually just leave them there because they get used often so it's easier than carrying them somewhere else just to haul them back out again.

    My problem is keeping them back there in a way that they are stable and don't move around. I have seen some tank rails and such online but they are all fairy expensive so I would like to stay away from anything like this.

    Can someone give me some advice to make a DIY tank transporter?"

    Trucks, 5 tanks...:lotsalove:
